Today in the U.S. we celebrate Thanksgiving; a national holiday where we give thanks for the many blessings we enjoy (at bowden2bowden we truly feel like the most blessed team on earth). Traditionally this is a day where families come together to eat a Thanksgiving turkey feast, and then we watch football until we pass out. But I think there has been another paradigm shift, skip the football let’s shop!
There is one day that is ours. There is one day when all we Americans who are not self-made go back to the old home to eat saleratus biscuits and marvel how much nearer to the porch the old pump looks than it used to. Thanksgiving Day is the one-day that is purely American. ~O. Henry
In all seriousness, here’s wishing you and your family a Joyous and Happy Thanksgiving.
